Oscar on the couch (THIEF-HUNTING)

I got up early this morning, had wheat flakes for breakfast. I was about to tear up the empty carton in order to through it in the paper-basket but then thought it would be nice to keep it for whatever purpose, and maybe even do a pencil drawing on it.
So I took out a HB (rather hard) graphit pen and draw Oscar, who is lying on the sofa .

And right now I'm waiting for my husband to return from an early appointment so that we can go to the market for some "thief-hunting", I'll take my camera with me....:)

Nice drawing. I can feel how this cat is getting heavier as it sleeps. (my cats seem to do so anyway)

I love to see Oscar balanced on the top of the chair, in dreamland doing his own hunting. Would you recognize the thief?? Be careful...or maybe you were joking. Have fun at the market. It is still there in NOvember, wow.

Got a giggle out of the Theif hunting. At least your sense of humour is still intact. But it does make you want to look at everyone.
Good use of trash. Nice drawing. Love kitty drawings. Lynn did some cat stuff too. I heard on a TV program that cat owners out number Dog owners. Because they fit small places easier and dont have to be walked.
Hope today was a better marketing day. Oh yeah..How long does the market last there? Does it stop in winter?

I love this drawing of Oscar. He looks so peaceful and comfy on his big pillow. Great use of the cereal box too.
Have fun thief hunting and hope you catch the mugger! Do be careful! No tackling yourself mind you...call the coppers!

I wonder if Oscar would be uncomfortable if he knew how many people around the world are observing him in such "vulnerable" and "precariously private" situations and positions!

Good evening to you, and thank you for your comments which I love! Oscar the cat indeed is getting heavier (which is very very heavy:) when he sleeps, too. Cats are so good at everything they do..

And I don't think, Oscar would be uncomfortable if he knew all my blogfriends are looking at him. He is a very socializing cat, and happy about every person that comes into our appartment.

If I could, I'd have a dog too, and a goat and geese....
Our market is here two times a week, on Wednesday and Saturday morning, all year long! We only go Saturday, cause Wednesday no time:)

Thief-hunting wasn't very efficient, I stared menacingly into the face of every men littler than me and over 50. But the thief wasn't among them. Perhaps we'll be luckier next Saturday and catch the MUGGER (love that word, Lynn!)

Sensitive portrait of a very contented cat :-) Lovely! What good use of a cereal packet!
